Here is what happens when a woman who owns no candles has a 52 spinner- assignment of "candlelight" on a day when it's pouring rain, and she wasn't motivated to go buy any anyway. I found some leftover birthday candles, and set about doing something playful. Meet two of my childhood companions, Pam and Mary-Lynn, one of Aunt Allie's monogrammed salt cellars, and my living room around 5 AM. Then add some of everything.
I like the texture but I won't be roaming the halls at 5am anytime soon. Creepy dolls are worse than creepy clowns so on an emotional scale you made a winner! S-

Thanks Linda. This one was borne of desperation, I fear. But these darned spinner challenges force you out of your box! I was not all that eager to try them because I LIKE my box, but I confess it's helped me think differently, and that will probably help within the box as well.
It's always fun to see what The Wheel brings! S-

Well, wouldn't you know it, after all our cold weather, I spin "ice cold" on the wheel during a week when we didn't have much of that. One day it got below freezing, but not enough so that anything froze. So, I give you a photo taken a couple of days ago at precisely 31 degrees F, which is as cold as ice but doesn't create any. It was a good outing to try long exposure which this is.

And then, because I felt like I might be cheating, I took a picture of tonight's supper, cabbage and tomato soup, fresh from the freezer. In fact I took 3 pictures and stacked them with different kinds of ice all stacked up together. Then I left it out to thaw. This stuff is SO good.

Love the reflection in the water; I can't get enough of those.

I'll see you your soup and raise you scrambled eggs. Matt

Minnie, your long exposure is gorgeous!! Can't say as I recognize any cabbage or soup in #2, but a very creative idea for an abstract :)

Glad you like the long exposure, I’m still learning about controlling for light and movement.

Thanks for breakfast!

Glad you liked the long exposure. I get just enough out of these to try another.

The cabbage sank to the bottom so the tomato broth is what I could see. It was in a red Tupperware so it looked really lurid and kinda creepy. I get silly sometimes...the 52 project can do that to you :)

Spinning cold on the wheel with a not so cold week, sounds much like Murphy's law is at hand. Happens to me all the time, (Murphy's law that is) but will say you found a way to put ole' Murphy in his/her place. The first image is a wonderful, pleasing scene. So relaxing, but I can't say the same about the other. Not much of a cabbage tasting fan, other than coleslaw, but your efforts to stay honest should be commended and is recognized. The cabbage and tomato soup image has a lava look to it from a volcano.

Thanks Dave.

(The cabbage soup really good, but the picture was an exercise in cold day fun - the lurid red came from the tupperware and stacking multiple shots on top of each other. Oh the things we do when playing with pictures...
